    I thought that all youtube videos had been converted to HTML 5? and doesn't Safari on iPad 4.2.1 support full HTML 5? but yet i can't watch youtube on Safari instead of the Youtube App. Or maybe i just have the whole idea of HTML 5 wrong.

    Download the app Terra. It allows u to disguise your browser as a desktop browser which avoids the whole mobile website stuff. Other browsers offer this too. The only thing bad about Terra is that it doesn't have a search bar.

    I have Atomic for when I really want to or need to goto a site that insists on the mobile version.

    Isn't flash video H.264 in a flash wrapper and HTML 5 H.264 in a HTML 5 wrapper?

    In my original post I used there site instead of their site. Let's blame it on autocorrect.

    Why is it that I haven't had any problems with seeing YouTube videos while using Safari (maybe so far)?

    Although I haven't seen you here in a while, For someone as anti iPad as you, you sure do spend some time on the iPad forums.

    That was my point exactly. (Maybe I am not Youtubing correctly. Change my habits and maybe see some problems ?)
